Just recently Kelly from View Along The Way did a piece covering Pink and Gold and how these contrasting colors fit in the housing setting.
Kelly came to a realization that the reason pink and gold work together so well is because “It knows it fabulous and doesn’t care what you think.” I agree with her styling know-how, because only after you look past the prententiousness of pink and gold can you realize it’s true elegance!
While I think the color clash between pink and gold can be quite dazzling, I also think to much of anything can kill you, and your style. Although pink and gold is a fabulous combination, I think it's definitely one decor angle that only works when used in moderation.
I decided to check out some other color scheme clashes, and general home variations that I think can work really well when used with moderation in mind.
Just like pink and gold, there are loads of contrasting colors out there that can compliment each other in fashionable ways. Take for example this green blue color scheme. While it can be difficult to match up bold colors, if your able to incorporate different shades of the two colors then the result can turn out very stylish, exemplified here.
|The Sleep Room|
They call this the “bohemian look,” offset mirror sizes that evoke a chic vintage style. The contrast between the two mirrors can be an impressive centerpiece where an otherwise single framed mirror or picture frame would be sitting.
|The Sleep Room|
The goal when decorating with white is to keep it interesting! In this bedroom you can see up to four different patterns created from what looks like textured wood.
While the headboard has a simple vent design, the mirror maintains an intricate floral style border. You’d think that having too many contrasting patterns would be a bad thing, but as you can see, with white it can only enhances your style!
|Marks and Spencer|
Skewing the placement of your décor arsenal is becoming more popular then ever. This bedroom by Marks and Spencer shows us that centered isn’t always better. The frames above the bed, as well as the front carpet are both shifted to the side giving this bedroom a fresh, eye-catching design.
The final decor clash I have today is this kitchen layout from Hillarys. Many of us play it safe when limiting our rooms to their traditional accessories and decorations.
Without risks there would be no rewards though! You can see here that they’ve incorporated both wall paper and a mirror typically used in a bedroom setting to enhance their kitchen’s style.
Don’t ever limit yourself to the possibilities of what you think your room can or cannot handle. The truth is, just like in life, if you can realistically visualize it then you can follow through with it. No pattern variation or color scheme is out of the question, not even pink and gold!
